I’ve always found that when I go to Paris or shopping with my French friends, they are much more conscious about the quality of what they are buying than my American friends. They tend to not impulsively buy absurdly uncomfortable things, but rather think about the material, the seams, the craftsmanship, where something was made, and how often and where they would be able to wear it. Given this, I’m consistently surprised at how well Zadig & Voltaire does! There are ton of Zadig stores spread across Paris and one opened not too long ago in NYC. Most of their pieces are either over-priced or just plain tacky like the Cabas Carla bag (298€), that Ashley Greene is sporting above. Doesn’t this leather bag look like a cheap street purchase? To Zadig’s defense it is 100% leather, but that certainly doesn’t justify the fact that it doesn’t look like it should cost more than $75. I’m also not a fan of those wings – a little poser rocker, no?
What do you think about Ashley Greene’s bag? Snob or Slob?
